Reverse engineering analysis of banknotes
The core of this presentation is the reverse engineering analysis and its contribution to more counterfeit resistant banknotes. Main points of interests are positive and negative aspects of reverse engineering, possible strategies related to banknote specification and design, individual security features, and alternative forms of counterfeiting. The role of traditional and new threats (Internet based tutorials, vector graphics, machine readable features) is also discussed. Can current conventional printing techniques and design still be considered a sufficient barrier against counterfeiting, or have they become obsolete and should be replaced with applied security features?
